This Week's Top Recorded Sales This Week's Top Recorded Sales

Two penthouses and a townhouse

When you’re buying at the rarified luxury level, it goes without saying that you’ll get plenty of space and top-of-the-line everything. To stay head and shoulders above all those other eight-figure buyers, palatial penthouses look down from great heights and newly-minted townhouse condos offer the luxury of a house in the city without the hassle of upkeep. This week’s top Manhattan sales cover both enviable options.

1. The Briarcliffe, 171 West 57th Street - #PH - $15,950,000

4 Bedrooms | 5.5 Bathrooms

This "Billionaire's Row" penthouse is as classic Manhattan grand as it gets. The four-bedroom duplex spans 5,573 elegant square feet in Midtown with irrigated, planted outdoor terraces, high ceilings (over 19 barrel-vaulted feet in the living room) and a dining room as big as the library is cozy. A catering chef's kitchen features Traulsen restaurant-grade appliances including a wine cooler, double refrigerator, freezer, 6-burner stove with a grill, wall ovens, Subzero beverage center, a stainless steel island and black granite counter-tops. Back on Earth, Central Park is just steps away.
